Today I am re-drafting my Shacket pattern, to tweak the construction process and at the same time draft the standard-sized patterns.

I have just stopped for lunch, but am still floating from the sensation of being in a very deep state of concentration for a long period of time.  For those who don't know, I am a Montessorian, and therefore I value this mental state more than most other things (besides air, Ben, etc.).  Reaching this state is how I have thrived my whole life, and I've always reached it by working with my hands.  After spending years working with children and helping them to find inner peace and joy through concentrated work, I realize why it is so important to me to work with my hands.

Back to work!
